Free Dereel Course

Flyer promoting Journal to the Self course in Dereel

Journal to the Self

I am delighted to announce I received a Community Strengthening Grant from the Golden Plains Shire which is being auspiced by the Golden Plains Arts Inc. group. This means I can offer Journal to the Self, free, in the Dereel community for 12 local people.

What is Journal to the Self?

Journal to the Self is a writing program that focuses on self awareness and personal growth. It covers 18 different journaling techniques which will help you to explore the various aspects of yourself, your life and your relationships with other people. This might interest you if you are considering change. You will benefit if you want to record your joys, or work through something which is concerning you. These techniques are also helpful if you have experienced loss or if you just want to live differently.

Kathleen Adams, psychotherapist and Director of the Centre for Journal Therapy, developed the program in 1985. Journal to the Self has been successfully run in many countries for decades.

Your Facilitator: Lisa Hunter

Everyone who teaches Journal to the Self has to complete a course of study through the Centre for Journal Therapy to become a Certified Instructor.

As well as holding the Certified Instructor, Journal to the Self, I’m a writer and artist. I use journaling techniques for my own creative projects. My formal qualifications include a Master of Creative Media (Creative Writing). Professionally, I have worked in the corporate sector as an Instructional Designer, creating training materials and workshops. You can find out more about my background here.

I will run Journal to the Self, free, only twice in Dereel. Limited places are available in each timeslot, so if this program interests you, please use the form below to express your interest or ask questions.
